Product Description

From the Back Cover

C# is a simple, modern, object-oriented, and type-safe programming language that combines the high productivity of rapid application development languages with the raw power of C and C++. Written by the language's architect and design team members, The C# Programming Language is the definitive technical reference for C#. Moving beyond the online documentation, the book provides the complete specification of the language along with descriptions, reference materials, and code samples from the C# design team.

The first part of the book opens with an introduction to the language to bring readers quickly up to speed on the concepts of C#. Next follows a detailed and complete technical specification of the C# 1.0 language, as delivered in Visual Studio .NET 2002 and 2003. Topics covered include Lexical Structure, Types, Variables, Conversions, Expressions, Statements, Namespaces, Exceptions, Attributes, and Unsafe Code.

The second part of the book provides an introduction to and technical specification of the four major new features of C# 2.0: Generics, Anonymous Methods, Iterators, and Partial Types.

Reference tabs and an exhaustive print index allow readers to easily navigate the text and quickly find the topics that interest them most. An enhanced online index allows readers to quickly and easily search the entire text for specific topics.

With the recent acceptance of C# as a standard by both the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and ECMA, understanding the C# specification has become critical. The C# Programming Language is the definitive reference for programmers who want to acquire an in-depth knowledge of C#.

Anders Hejlsberg is a programming legend. He is the architect of the C# language and a Microsoft Technical Fellow. He joined Microsoft in 1996, following a 13-year career at Borland, where he was the chief architect of Delphi and Turbo Pascal.

 

Mads Torgersen is a senior program manager at Microsoft. As the program manager for the C# language, he runs the C# language design meetings and maintains the C# language specification. Prior to joining Microsoft in 2005, Mads was an associate professor at the University of Aarhus, teaching and researching object-oriented programming languages. There, he led the group that designed and implemented generic wildcards for the Java Programming Language.

 

Scott Wiltamuth is partner program manager for Visual Studio. While at Microsoft, he has worked on a wide range of developer-oriented projects, including Visual Basic, VBScript, JScript, Visual J++, and Visual C#. Scott is one of the designers of the C# language, and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from Stanford University.

 

Before leaving Microsoft, Peter Golde served as the lead developer of Microsoft’s C# compiler. As the primary Microsoft representative on the ECMA committee that standardized C#, he led the implementation of the compiler and worked on the language design.

Format: Hardcover
Co-authored by Anders Hejlsberg a Distinguished Engineer at Microsoft and the chief architect of Microsoft C# and .NET Framework (as well as the chief engineer of Borland Delphi and the man behind J++, WFC, Turbo Pascal,…) this book is the definitive and authoritative technical reference for the C# language and an essential read for developers who want to acquire an in-depth knowledge of the language.
In the book you’ll find a well-structured language specification for the C# 1.0 as delivered in VS .NET 2K2 and 2K3, which goes way beyond the online documentation and covers the main new features of the C# 2.0 including Generics, Anonymous Methods, Iterators and Partial Types. All these are accompanied by annotations, reference materials, and useful code samples.
It's not a light read in any way, however you don’t have to be an experienced C# developer to benefit from the book. As long as you want to acquire a solid understanding of the C# and how to write managed code, this is perhaps the best choice. Also an online index - in addition to comprehensive printed index and reference tabs - makes search and navigation for a required topic very easy.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Stand by for a dry read - this is a reference manual for language lawyers, the equivalent of The ISO C++ Standard for C#, not an equivalent of The C Programming Language, The C++ Programming Language or The Java Programming Language which are useful tutorials to their respective languages. The annotations are sometimes good, sometimes a bit of a filler.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a difficult read, the book is written by the guys who also wrote the language and compiler. It is thorough and informative but it is dry and difficult to read. This is definitely not one for the beginner and even then the intermediate may have some difficulties, so stay away if you are one of these. Otherwise, this book covers the concepts in detail and depth, so if you need to understand these then go ahead this book will certainly educate.
